Gagarin Park, Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk

(3.8/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
One of the largest of its kind in the Russian Far East, Gagarin Park offers you a wealth of opportunities for enjoying the great outdoors of Sakhalin Island. Covering 89 hectares (220 acres), the park boasts lush vegetation, lakes and ponds, playgrounds, and a number of other attractions suitable for kids and adults alike. Go for a stroll along the network of footpaths that crisscross the area or, for a little more exertion, lace up your running shoes and hit the pavement. Alternatively, you can rent a paddleboat from one of the athletic and outdoor facilities that dot the park and get a new perspective of the area from the water. Don't miss hopping aboard one of the park's miniature trains, which make for quick transportation as well as a kind of unofficial tour. Use our Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk trip itinerary builder to add Gagarin Park and other attractions to your Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk vacation plans.

  • Park in the summertime, a very nice place to relax. lots of greenery and attractions. in winter time it almost does not work. It is very a pity that removed all cafes and kebab houses, previously you could sit by the Lake, enjoy nature and have a snack.

  • A great place to relax after the mountains. Good Cafe with very tasty food. Prices are not great. The area of the Park has surprised and pleased. A lot of trees. There is no such place in Khabarovsk ((((
